Going back to the MW2 PC Server Issue

After listening to a recent episode of Kotaku Talk Radio and hearing how guys at IW were threatened and had accounts either duplicated or hacked on forums just proves my point that gamers are just absolutely insane.

Some PC gamers especially in this case just show themselves to be inconsiderate bullies and frankly a disgrace to the gaming community as a whole.

I do understand that they do lose some things like the ability to change the rules to a large extent except what IWNet offer. However, after playing MW2 PC I can say that I love the new design.

The reason my brother originally wanted to get the PC was to get another version apart from the PS3 game which he could play sometimes as a change. What he ended up getting is essentially exactly what he wanted. The PC version provides the same fantastic matchmaking that gets you into a game in seconds with no fuss whatsoever. No searching through a seemingly endless list of severs to find a game, only simplicity and easy of use, which is surely preferable for a large percentage of users, and even the gamers who are complaining I’m sure will warm to it in the end.

If they don’t, well there’s plenty of other games to be playing. I mean Counter Strike is still going strong so there’s always that as an option.

High Hopes for Gaming in 2008

2008 is going to be a really good year for gaming and thats not to say 2007 was a slouch at all. We had Super Mario Galaxy and COD4 last year among others, I almost forgot about The Burning Crusade and tons of other games I can’t remember right now. This year I’m looking forward to some great Nintendo titles like Mario Kart Wii, Smash Bros. Brawl and Wii Fit. All of which will be amazing for sure. Then on the PS3 side, although not a game, Playstation Home will be interesting to check out, plus a Gran Turismo 5, Metal Gear Solid 4, GTA 4, Haze and more to look forward to. On the PC side theres WoW The Wrath of the Lich King, Starcraft 2 and the impressive looking Spore. I’m not really much of a hardcore PC gamer but I’m really looking forward to playing these games. Then for those into the whole Xbox side of things, there’s Fable 2 that has been talked up for a while now, and of course Gears of War 2 which will be in the running for game of the year, but then again there are so many here that could win. I wouldn’t be too surprised if Wii Fit won to the dismay of hardcore gamers everywhere. Anyway, I’m sure I’m missing some from this list but I think even if I did this is still another huge year for gaming. Just not too kind to people’s wallets.
